I will not complain. I will not complain. I will not complain.
Am I the only one who ships Clara/Captain Latimer? Yes? Okay then.
"The green lady, she said you were the savior of worlds once. Are you going to save this one?" "If I do, will you come away with me?"
And it was at that point that I wanted this to be a very different story. I suddenly wanted Clara to say yes and go with him and about halfway through the season it would come out that she didn't really do it for the adventure (though of course that's fun and it made it easier), she did it because she thought that was the price. Her for the world. The Doctor gets her and the world gets to live. The dragon gets the princess and the kingdom is spared. Seeing the Doctor angst about being an unintentional monster would've been great.
Of course that didn't happen and Clara's a big, giant mystery and honestly I'm tired of it already.
Okay, I complained a little but I promise that wasn't my point. Really I just wanted to get those earlier thoughts out.
